Additional information

Acute skin irritation studies with Guerbet alcohols have been conducted in both humans and rabbits. In rabbits 6 respresentatives of the category of Guerbet alcohols showed only slight irritant effects. Studies in human volunteers showed no irritant effects.

Data on eye irritation are available for 6 respresentatives of the category. All substances showed only slight irritant effects in the rabbit eye.

No data on respiratory irritation are available for any substance of the category.

Effects on eye irritation: slightly irritating

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data are conclusive but not sufficient for classfication of 2 -butyloctan-1-ol with regard to irritation/corrosion.
